Subject: Power in the Dynamics
I saw this film a few months ago, and I still think about that last scene, running it over in my head in admiration and awe. I commend the director for his uncanny ability to capture the dynamics between several couples, connecting them with crackling or sparse dialog for a see-saw effect on who's winning/who's got the power/who's on the defensive or offensive; the few of the film's most calm and natural moments IMHO reveal true feelings. As for the director's style and writing, I'd have to mention "The Anniversary Party," Hal Hartley, Neil LaBute, and early Steven Soderberg. I especially like how the film was cast and admire the choice of the two main male leads.

This is the best thing I've seen since A Woman Under The Influence. Complex storytelling, interesting characters with real personalities, and honest.
Perplexing without pretentiousness; intricacy through simplicity-- it's just people, people and their relationships. And it's damn visceral. As Ray Carney said, you will feel both beat up and exhilarated by the end of it.
Intimate and rough and beautiful.

I finally saw this film after putting it off for a year for some strange reason (fear?) and man was I impressed! Such great scene work and the overall structure is clever but not overly so - it adds and reveals rather than cheaply obscuring, and the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts. HIGHLY reccomended for anyone trying to make a film outside the formulaic system but still wants to make a drama about love and life and human beings. FOUR STARS!

a convoluted story of the love lives for a group of friends. They all meet at a party for one of their birthdays. We find that they have hidden secrets which they dont tell. I watched but did not enjoy that much.
